Traffic Islands: Dividing Lines
This documentary explores the collective narrative created by people whose lives
intersect in different ways with traffic islands and streetscapes. From a scientist trying to rationalize urban wildlife patterns, to a man who makes a living on the street corner, to people who use the streetscape to
memorialize loved ones: what they have in common is that they map out private parts of their
lives on the public traffic grid. We'll hear about this traffic island life in
stories from the medians, as part of the international documentary collaboration, Global Perspectives on Islands.
